Other than that I came out pretty nicely. lol

haha, The brake pads were just a few hours. The CPS and the OPS are gonna be an all day deal. My only thing is what if it's not those that's the problem. I know it threw those codes but some say it can do that falsely.

Still choppy and not just the cam. It'll still die at idle in gear.

Mine is doing that, too. It is this hot humid air.

I just took the supercharger off to get to that sensor back there.

In order to check the pressure on a secondary gauge I have to make tap somewhere which will require modifying and adding the hose and fittings. Might as well just move the sensor at this point. I just can't find a relocation kit for our cars.

There is a lot it could be. I've ruled out most of that on mine. Mine will do it with no codes also. I did get a crank position sensor code so I bought one. We'll see.

Air leak, Idle setting etc...........

No doubt. Gave me a chance to tighten everything and clean the throttle body and the whole manifold plus tighten the coolant hoses on the rear. NOW would be the time to put the cog drive in though. But I don't have the money to buy one. haha

yeah, the beautiful sound of cogs
i'd be kicking myself for pulling the blower & not doing it, too.
but then again, i'd have to change the rest of my pulleys around & retune again... or forge the engine due to the extra boost (i'm already at my 11psi limit now) - but then why would i forge this puny LS1? why not forge a stroked LS3 & slap on some good heads & a healthy cam while i'm at it?

oh wait... no cash, that's why

Bonnie bailed me out. But she waited til she was finished at the Gym. And nail studio. And shopping mall. And dinner with an unknown person.


*jeez, she must have enjoyed this*

My cell mate was freaking crazy. The stories he had .... whoa!!!!!

This crazy ****er stayed up late one night and went in his garage to spin a wheel and stuck his finger between the spokes and brake caliper.


Wait.......................
